ChainLink On The Rise
In the past couple of days, ChainLink has been making certain improvements. However, most of these have gone unnoticed. It all began with the big news on the 23rd of August. On this day, the team gave the investors an opportunity to track the Silver price. They can now do this in their various DApps through the use of XAG/USD price feed put in place by ChainLink team. It is important to note that the price feed is utilized by a system known as Synthetix. Synthetix has also announced that it would introduce commodities derivatives to DeFi.
ChainLink Now Listed On Bitfinex
The 21st of August 2020 was a big day for ChainLink. This is the day it was listed on one of the biggest crypto exchanges, Bitfinex. Earlier today, the trading margin of ChainLink’s main coin, LINK, was enabled on Bitfinex. It happened together with that of Polkadot – DOT. With that, the traders at Bitfinex are now able to trade both assets with a maximum of 3.3 times in leverage. They can also do that with 15% as the maintenance margin and 30% as the initial equity. An online form has been provided for those who would like to take part in the hackathon. With the prizes up for grabs, it seems so many crypto enthusiasts will take part.
